New Jersey To See 8 Inches Of Snow

It’s time for another update from the US National Weather Service Philadelphia/Mount Holly system that is moving our way.

A cold front will lead to a rapid drop in temperatures through tonight. Rain will move into the region from the southwest after midnight, transitioning to snow in the early morning hours.

Heavy snow, with amounts of at least 6-8 inches, will result in treacherous driving conditions and snow-covered roads.

Locally higher snowfall totals above 8 inches cannot be entirely ruled out where heavier banding forms. Some weather apps such as are reporting 8-12 inches for Cape May County. 

Snowfall rates in excess of 1 inch per hour are possible in the heaviest snow on Monday morning.

This will take place in portions of the Eastern Shore of Maryland, central and southern Delaware, and far southern New Jersey.

Areas near and along the I-95 corridor including Philadelphia and its suburbs will see amounts of a coating to 3 inches.

Even though roads may initially remain above freezing, higher snowfall rates will still lead to roads eventually becoming snow-covered in areas under warnings or advisories.

Cape May County and Atlantic County will be the areas with the most snow totals in New Jersey.

North-northeasterly winds gusting to gale force and seas of 5 to 8 feet will make for difficult navigation on the ocean.

Additional rounds of coastal flooding are expected. A Coastal Flood Warning has been issued for tidal portions of Atlantic, Cape May, and Sussex Counties.

The next US National Weather Service Philadelphia/Mount Holly briefing will be at 6 am tomorrow morning.

Tune back later for more details on the weather and some Snow photos and videos from the Wildwood Boardwalk.
